IPC — Association Connecting Electronics Industries invites engineers, researchers, academics, technical experts and industry leaders to submit abstracts for IPC APEX EXPO 2018 to be held at the San Diego Convention Center. Professional development courses will take place February 25, 26 and March 1, 2018 and the technical conference will take place February 27–March 1, 2018.
The industry’s premier conference and exhibition for the electronics industry, IPC APEX EXPO provides presenters and their companies with a notable and cost-effective opportunity to promote their expertise and gain visibility with key engineers, managers and executives from all segments of the industry worldwide. Staff from companies such as Ericsson, Flex, IBM, Indium, Intel, MacDermid Enthone and Robert Bosch GmbH have presented papers at past technical conference sessions at IPC APEX EXPO. To recognize exceptional achievement, awards will be presented for “Best Paper.”
Expert papers and presentations are being sought on design, materials, assembly, processes, test, reliability and equipment in the following areas:
An approximate 300-word technical conference abstract summarizing original and previously unpublished work covering case histories, research and discoveries must be submitted. The submission should describe significant results from experiments and case studies, emphasize new techniques, discuss trends of interest and contain appropriate technical test results.
In addition, course proposals are solicited from individuals interested in presenting half-day (three-hour) professional development courses on design, manufacturing processes and materials.
Technical conference paper abstracts are due July 7, 2017 and course proposals are due August 18, 2017. To submit an abstract or course proposal, click here.
